BACKGROUND:
Hindu family , living in a 7” x 5 “ room on 2nd floor with a  double bed where all four members sleep. A small attached room is used for cooking  and washing. Altogether, six families in the building share a common bathroom and toilet facilities. Father died of asthma attack on their 6th wedding anniversary when the youngest daughter was just two months old.

Mother’s income from the three jobs as a housemaid is inadequate to maintain all their needs. Apparently, she borrows from loan sharks/ friends  to repay in installments! Often she needs money for school needs and food. Monthly rental is Rs. 1800/ p m+ utilities.

UPDATES:
2014:
May: Received detailed update on children, including report cards. In addition to food, support is spent on school fees, uniform, and medical needs.  Volunteer writes: "Anthony needs to improve on his basic skills as his foundation is not too sound. Lavina has shown a lot of keenness and interest and wants to do well at school. She is the most intelligent of the three. Leo has fared well, but needs to improve in his oral skills." Each child moved up a grade in May 2014.

September: Received detailed update on children, including photographs. Children received new clothes for Easter and new shoes for school. Children also were treated to a dosai meal at a cafe. Children have gained weight and are healthier and happier.

December: Children treated to a holiday meal at Kentucky Fried Chicken.

2015-2018:  Routine reports on children's welfare and detailed accounting for monthly expenses are on file.

Support ceased in December 2017 and children taken off the program, after four years of continuous monthly assistance.
